Over in Virginia, a middle school part of Fairfax County Public Schools tried so hard to be actively anti-racist that they’ve literally become racists.
According to a letter sent to parents regarding college prep courses, black and Hispanic students were encouraged to apply, but Asian and white students were clearly excluded.
“Do you have an 8th grader who WANTS to go to college?” said the letter sent out last week. “Do they fall into one or more of these categories?” They asked before listing “Black or African American” and “Hispanic students, of one or more race,” in addition to students who would be the first in their families to attend college, those with disabilities, English learners, and those living under the poverty line.
“If you do, PLEASE APPLY for Fairfax County’s Partnership Program,” they asked. “A typical CCP student represents a traditionally underrepresented population in higher education.”

Need Not Apply
According to Asra Nomani at the Fairfax Times in a tweet, “In the 20th century, Asian Exclusion Act denied Asians equal opportunities. Now, [Fairfax Country Public Schools] promotes a college prep program with race-based admissions, excluding Asians + whites. A judge already ruled FCPS violated US Constitution in new anti-Asian admissions.”
She also added that “The perks also include monetary rewards: ‘A summer experiential learning opportunity (you actually visit a college and stay on their campus!).”
“This program excludes children based on race, and it seems to be in direct violation of the school district’s own anti-discrimination policy,” said Glenn Miller, an FCPS parent and local attorney.
According to The Daily Wire, Asians comprised “19% of the 181,447 students, school district data tabulated in February revealed; the 666,263 white students comprise 37% of the total student population.”

FCPS Promotes Critical Race Theory
Speaking of FCPS’ anti-discrimination policy, let’s take a look at part of it:
“No applicant or employee on the basis of, of race, sex, color, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, genetic information, pregnancy status, childbirth or related medical conditions, marital status, veteran status, and disability shall be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under, any education program or activity, as required by law…”
Doesn’t sound like they’ve read it recently because now in order to promote ‘equality’, they’ve actually embraced discriminatory practices.
Good job FCPS, you played yourself.
This whole situation isn’t something that popped up overnight though. In 2021, FCPS sent a PowerPoint to teachers walking them through how to push controversial Critical Race Theory practices into their own classrooms.
Topics of the presentation included ways for teachers to introduce to students “culturally relevant pedagogy,” “institutional/systemic racism,” “anti-racism education,” and “anti-hate education.”
The PowerPoint stated “In adopting this approach, CRT scholars attempt to understand how victims of systemic racism are affected by cultural perceptions of race and how they are able to represent themselves to counter prejudice.”
